-The Depth and quality of your research matters. Citing your textbook or what is said during class really isn’t impressive in a college research paper. Your research should branch out beyond the classroom and the textbook. Dictionaries and encyclopedias (including Wikipedia) have some value as background information, but should not be cited as sources in the text. Be careful about using web sites as sources; many of them are not credible. If you cannot clearly state who is the writer of the material on the web site and what qualifies that person or persons to be an authority on the subject, then you probably do not have credible source.
-atleast 7-10 sources. Remember(1) more sources are better than fewer,2 high-quality sources are better than low-quality sources, and 3 cited sources that clearly enhance your paper are better than sources that make no apparent impact on the text.
